The Date Jar – Nottingham Edition

In anticipation of returning to Nottingham, I spent a couple of days putting together a Notts-special Date Jar for me and my partner. If you’re not familiar with the concept of a Date Jar, it’s a jar (or some other container) filled with date ideas – perfect for indecisive couples! Full of our favourite spots mixed in with new places we haven’t tried before, it’s going to add variety to our Nottingham date nights. I decided to split mine into four categories: restaurants, cafes, cocktail bars and activities – for different types of dates!

Whether you’re on the market for a cute first date, a romantic day-out with your other half or just a fun time with your friends – this list definitely has what you’re looking for.
